The latest addition to the expanding list of smart household appliances is the iKettle by a company called Smarter. Get excited about this one, because if you hate groggy mornings, this neat little kettle will help you overcome them.
The iKettle is the first Wifi kettle in the world and it allows you remote control over it with your smartphone. Before, you had to rush out of bed to turn on your kettle so you can have your coffee or tea on time. Now, you can snooze a bit longer knowing that your iKettle will make sure you get your favorite hot beverage before it’s too late.
By presetting the time, you can have your iKettle ready even before you wake up with its wake up mode. With its welcome home mode, this kettle can turn itself on right as you enter your house so you can enjoy a cup of your favorite coffee after a long day at work. You can set the kettle to operate on four different temperatures (65°C, 80°C, 95°C and 100°C), depending on what you are brewing. This kettle also has a keep warm feature, if you are a bit away from your kettle and can’t get to it right away so you don’t have to wait for the water to warm up again. The app necessary for you to control this amazing kettle is available on Android 4+ and iOS 7+ devices. Through the app you will also get notified each time your kettle is empty and requires refilling.
The kettle itself is elegantly designed, and its slick stainless steel look allows it to fit into most modern kitchens. It has a water capacity of 1.8 liters, perfect when you have larger groups of people over and you want to offer coffer or tea to all of them. If the stainless steel look does not appeal to you, you will be happy to know that you can alter its look with a silicone skin. The silicone skin accessory is available in five different colors (taupe, red, blue, black and green) and beside changing the appearance of your iKettle it also insulates and protects it.
If you are into having an array of smart devices in your home, than the Smarter iKettle is a must have for you. With just a wireless router and the featured app, you can sit back and relax while the kettle works for you.
